Tip – make these gluten free by using gluten free baking powder

Makes about 20

200g quinoa
350g frozen peas
200g feta
4 shallots, thinly sliced
2 tsp ground cumin
3 tsp baking powder
2 eggs, lightly whisked
Salt & Pepper
1-2 tbs cornflour if required
Oil for frying – i use grapeseed

Method

Cook quinoa, simmer for 10 mins until cooked and drain well.

In a bowl mix quinoa, feta, shallots, cumin, peas, baking powder and eggs. Season well.

Use a stick blender to blend half of the mixture up, and then mix through with the unblended mixture. Add some cornflour if mixture is too runny.

Heat a couple of centimetres of oil in large frying pan, roll mixture into balls and fry in batches. Once golden, drain on paper towel.

These are great as a snack or served with a salad..I serve with lemon and a dollop of yogurt
